Rocco Taraborrelli debuts as a solo artist with his new CD entitled "Recipe of Love".
This collection of well rounded and diversified tunes, ("Beyond Her Shadow" - "Back in Time" - "Party Lyte" - "Recipe of Love"), show his compositional versatility in the "Smooth Jazz" arena. The single jacket CD is sure to make waves in the industry.
This CD is in memory of his Mother. Her wide array of gourmet cooking styles blended her enriched and beautiful life in a unique and astonishing way. Rocco notes "The Recipe of Love is found in every way she lived her life."
A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Rocco has continued to work steadily in the music business. He has extensively worked the theaters in Atlantic City with such headliners as Johnny Mathis, Lou Rawls, Dionne Warwick, Steve Lawrence, Edie Gourmet, Julio Eglesias, The 4 Tops, The Temptations, The Spinners and many others, as well as a brief touring with Wayne Newton. He also freelances and does extensive studio work.
His true love is Jazz in which he strives to find a larger and broader market. Rocco adds, "Jazz behaves in many ways, and there is no right or wrong, just a wide array of choices for the listeners' personal preference." His favorite trumpet player is Clifford Brown.
Rocco enjoys golf, family time and living his life with passion. He lives with his wife, Rose and their two boys, Rocky, 9, and Vincent, 5.
